Rasashastra is one of the subjects in Ayurveda which specially deals with minerals, herbal and herbo-mineral preparations along with their therapeutic uses and is known for its quick action and has been proved to be effective in treating various ailments. Malla Yoga is a preparation mentioned in Sidhabheshaja manimala Swasa adhikara 4/8, which contains Shodhita Shankha and Shoditha Malla as its main ingredients.

The study was done for 14 days in Albino rats to find out the minimum therapeutic dose, maximum tolerated dose and median lethal dose
